Promises

During Usain Bolt's victory lap yesterday, Televisa's guy on the track managed to pull him aside and demand that he "Say something to Mexico!" Though Bolt had no doubt prepared a brief address to the Mexican people to be delivered in the event that he emerged victorious, he'd apparently mislaid his notes and was momentarily flummoxed. Then, with a huge smile, he turned to the camera and said, "I'm a-comin' fo' spring break!" and went laughing on his way.

Video Bonus: This is unrelated to Bolt, but we thought you might enjoy a taste of the Mexican coverage. Note the set made up to look like the Hunan Palace dim sum emporium, and the chinky-tinkly music in the background. We'd also draw your attention to the talking hand puppet, but he's kinda hard to miss.
